Don't Buy This....................................

"If you are some kind of bad documentary junkie who can't get enough of the VH1 Behind the Music ..., this is the video for you. Beatles fans, stay away! I'd really only give this "specialty" item one half star. Not one note of Beatles music is on this tape (the makers obviously didn't have the time or money to actually get licensed fab four tunes). Instead, we get a blend of elevator muzak and other sound-alike liverpudlian bands, neither of which could fool a toddler into thinking it was them. Not since the Ed Rudy "live" rip-offs of the 1960's have I seen such a blatant violation of the Sacred Beatles' name. I spit on this tape.Adding insult to injury, a bunch of "groupies" share meaningless tidbits of information with us, none of which having much relevence to Beatles' history. Aside from some rare interview material it is utterly useless and a terrible disgrace. BEWARE!"
One Of The Best Documentarys On The Beatles!!!!

"I really anticipated this video being a die-hard fan of the Bea tles.But there is precious little new information and footage.There is too much commentary from people that I am not interested in. This reinforces my feeling that the producers needed something to fill in the gap.The video runs about 60 minutes and at times fleshes out film we are all familiar with but very briefly.If you are new to the Beatles or have a casual interest and don't want to spend the money for the Anthology ,you might enjoy this.As for me this was just a momentary fix!"
A Beatles documentary without The Beatles music?

"I second the opinion of another reviewer who also gave this film one star. Whatever artistic reasons film makers had in mind, it is simply impossible to make a decent film about the Beatles without including a piece from their song. And it smells cheap! I'm not well informed Beatles expert, but I know the names of George Martin and Derek Taylor. No words by these people, instead all film is based on interviews with two-three others who were indeed witnesses but in no way took part in the Beatles art.
This is a budget film, do you want it or not. And the Beatles deserved something better."
